CROSSREFS

Cf. Sequences of numbers n such that 3^n + m is prime:

  (m = 2) A051783, (m = -2) A014224, (m = 4) A058958, (m = -4) A058959,

  (m = 8) A217136, (m = -8) A217135, (m = 10) A217137, (m = -10) A217347,

  (m = 14) A219035, (m = -14) A219038, (m = 16) A205647, (m = -16) A219039,

  (m = 20) A219040, (m = -20) A219041, (m = 22) A219042, (m = -22) A219043,

  (m = 26) A219044, (m = -26) A219045, (m = 28) A219046, (m = -28) A219047,

  (m = 32) A219048, (m = -32) A219049, (m = 34) A219050, (m = -34) A219051. Note that if m is a multiple of 3, 3^n + m is also a multiple of 3 (for n greater than 0), and as such isn't prime.

Sequence in context: A263041 A216888 A106048 * A258454 A176776 A049931
